TEXT: “Be ye therefore ready also: for the son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not” (Luke 12:40).
Sometime ago, a notorious gang of robbers wrote to a community alerting the people of their intention to visit them. They advised them to get ready to meet them because it would be a bloody and disastrous confrontation. The community leaders met and put up a stiff security measure. Days, weeks and months went by and no sign of invasion. Then they relaxed. At the dawn of one fateful day, they came in full force maiming, burning, looting, raping and killing. Within some hours, the community became a ghost town.
Jesus warned His disciples that His coming would be unpredictably sudden. It would take many people unawares. The only prescription for not missing the rapture is to be ever ready. God has you in mind in His eternal plan of salvation but you have a role to play- stay ready. Checkup! Are you also ready? Are you born again with current assurance of salvation? Have you made all necessary restitutions? Ensure you are living holy. Then, be busy where you are, serving the Lord. Are you really ready?
